Funnily enough, the first lyric in the latest single “THE SLEEP” from up and coming Alt Rock artist DEARBONES perfectly describes what is in store for you when you hit play. “These scales peel razor sharp wires from the spine” is fairly telling of the alchemy which spills from the less than archetypal guitar progressions as they scream throughout the mix yet constantly find new melodic ways to leave you mesmerised.
The Massachusetts fourpiece was founded in 2017 after converging with the aim of offering intellectually compelling lyricism (which borders on ominous poetry) entwined in a blistering Alt-Rock soundscape. For Prog Rock and Post Rock fans, THE SLEEP is a playlist essential, each time you immerse yourself in the track you’ll find new shards of resonance which affirm that DEARBONES are perceptively a band worth getting excited about.
